Victoria Gyles is a senior associate in the Intellectual Property group who advises on a wide range of intellectual property rights across a range of industry sectors and is an experienced litigator.
“I have extensive experience advising clients in relation to their IP rights, across a wide range of contentious and non-contentious matters and with a particular focus on trade marks and copyright.
I assist clients in relation to the enforcement and validity of their IP rights and have represented clients in significant and high value copyright, trade mark and patent disputes. My litigation experience includes acting for clients before the Court of Appeal, High Court and Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC), as well as before the trade mark registries at the UKIPO and the EUIPO. I also have experience of assisting clients settle disputes through mediation.
IP for many businesses is one of its most important assets and I also help clients protect and exploit their IP rights by ensuring they have the right agreements in place. My transactional experience includes working on licensing, distribution, franchising, technology and joint venture arrangements, and advising on matters of contract interpretation.’’
